Ladies, gentlemen, and those that are not sure just yet, pleased to meet you!
I am the bearded one they call Aaron Broke.
I’ve been in this glorious industry of body art since 2008.
I’ve spent three years as an apprentice under Randy V.; an award winning artist from Club Tattoo.
My studies in art go as far back as I can remember.
At 6 years old I was reading comics and trying to draw and mimic the characters from the pages.
Soon I expanded to the characters, objects, and people my friends would ask me to draw and color.
With the strong support of my parents I continued to move forward into turning my passion into a full time career.
I attended art school for 4 years and graduated with a degree in Graphics and Communication Arts, which almost immediately I turned into a full time graphic artist position at a silkscreen shop.
I work in many mediums and try to keep learning new and creative ways to step up the art and bring it current with the times.
I’ve worked in mediums such as pencil, pen, watercolor, acrylics, aerosol, photography, digital graphics, print media, clothing, and even sculpture.
I aim to bring aspects of each into my tattooing.
Becoming a tattoo artist was always something that I imagined doing, but always thought was out of reach.
I could not see doing anything else daily though that would make me as happy so I went for it.
And now as I tattoo the grin is ear to ear!
I enjoy most types of tattoo art, but by far my favorite style is traditional mixed with a bit of neo-traditional or color bomb work.
The big bold lines and super bright saturated colors speak to me, well not literally “speak” to me because that would be creepy and weird!
So come by Vicious Ink Tattoos and see me and we can put that permanent piece of art on your canvas!
Or if you are not sure yet just come by and say hi and stay and hang out, we keep it fun and friendly in here.
